Boardwalk

Boardwalk

Ferris Wheels, tufts of cotton candy, and hot summer nights were the inspiration for this sweater. As always, the goal of practicality is threaded throughout the entire top down piece; lightweight and airy with enough structure to give shape without making you uncomfortable in the heat. Cap sleeves and high-low style offers practical design elements beautifully balanced against the whimsical colorwork and hem statements. The stranded colorwork is only on the front, to avoid accidentally snagging anything you might brush up against, and the bobbles at the hem provide just enough weight to keep the edges from curling while maintaining the charming scallop.

Bobble Paw

Bobble Paw

This triangle shawl has gentle angles and is the ideal summer travel project. Beginning in a soothing stockinette that changes to chunky garter stripes, it also has the occasional clusters of eyelets to provide visual interest and shaping support. Ending in a fun lace pattern, it offers a built in fastening solution to make the shawl extremely wearable during the active outings summer weather demands. The bobble bind off offers a charming and quirky touch without branching into a childish appearance.
